Aurora Talks

Apart from imparting relevant professional competencies, university studies always have a personality-building character: horizons are broadened, new possibilities are revealed, competencies are sharpened - and in particular those "skills" are promoted that are needed to cope with the economic, social and cultural challenges of our time. The Aurora European Universities Alliance seeks to develop and provide new tools and formats for this issue of skills development, which can be used by teachers and are reflected in the university's course offerings. This promotes a "skills & mindset" that enables graduates of Aurora universities to become active players of social change.

For scholars who see added value for their teaching in this kind of (further) development, the term "aurorization" is used within the Aurora Alliance: This means that teaching and learning units (such as courses, modules or entire studies) take up at least one of various Aurora criteria and thus promote the desired "skill & mindset". The criteria or measures range from the opening of selected courses for students in the Aurora network, to team-teaching activities, to the anchoring of (virtual) mobility elements or the use of special learning formats such as (international) service learning.
